Congratulations to Dr. Hao Hu upon his selection as an Outstanding Postdoctoral Trainee in Cancer Prevention for 2015, an award he shares with Dr. Nicholas Whiting.
Congratulations also to Dr. Chad Huff upon his selection as a Leading Mentor in Cancer Prevention for 2015, an award he shares with fellow Epidemiology Professor, Dr. Shine Chang. The aim of this award is to acknowledge the extraordinary performance and dedication of mentors to trainees preparing for careers in cancer prevention.
Both award recipients were honored at the Cancer Prevention Grand Rounds on January 9th.
The Huff lab is excited to announce the recent addition of a new post-doctoral fellow, Yao Yu. Yao's research interests include high-throughput genomics and transcriptomics. He completed his doctoral research at the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences, and his work will be focused on the genetic basis of common cancers from high-throughput omics data.
The Huff lab is happy to welcome its first graduate student, Jiun-Sheng (Roger) Chen. Roger is a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences and will initially be focused on identifying common, complex disease genes using pVAAST on whole-exome and whole-genome sequencing data. Welcome, Roger!
